Martin Harley celebrates ‘Golden Opportunity’ at Newcastle


MARTIN HARLEY bagged his latest winner this afternoon at Newcastle.

The Trentagh man’s good form continued when he rode Golden Opportunity to victory in the 32Red Casino Handicap.

The James Tate-trained Golden Opportunity was the 5/2 joint favourite and staved off competition from the 3/1 Marquee Club to take the win.

In a previous race today at Newcastle, Harley was second aboard David Simcock’s Brittanic, the 2/1 shot finishing behind Ay Ay in the Sun Bets Conditions Stakes.

It comes after Harley steered Coillte Cailin (3/1) to victory at Lingfield on Saturday.
